    Ok the topic can sound a little bit dull, i know.

    Let´s say that there is a couple of persons that is about to start a company but they lack foundings, they decide to make a campagin on there homepage to encourage you to sponsor/invest in the idea, the investment size could be anyting from 1cent and up to over +1000USD (you would pay through Visa, Mastercard or maybe Paypal), the only profit you would make is getting your mooney back + an additional of 10-20% the mooney you invested.
    Would you do it? (remember that the company would make products or services in your personal interest area, the area you like the most)

    There isnt really a profit for you, i am just asking since there has been a couple of campaigns on the internet, some time agoo there was a girl or a dude that wanted a Macbook Pro, and he got it and engraved the sponsors logos on the computer.

    If anything is unclear, just ask.

    (This is not an advertise, just wanted to see how willing people is in general)

    No. I don't think I would want to take on the risk for such a small profit.
